Hey, Podsters:

Been meaning to deal with this for a while.  Gotta get 'er done.  Somehow, the AC shroud has melted and cracked away from the screws.  We live in a hot summer climate, but I'm surprised this can happen.  Normally, I keep a cover over the trailer, which is breathable with a white top.  Would a white AC shroud prevent this?  Also, looking on Amazon, I don't see one quite like this, and the manual lists something like twenty different models.  Any ideas on where I can get a replacement?  I'm not quite sure on which one to order.



Thanks!

Where do you live?  Gets hot here, but not to that point.

Hi, Mike:

Bishop, CA.  100 deg. F. is not uncommon here in the summer.  We're fairly high, too, about 4,200 ft. so UV is strong.
